Conatus (Latin for effort- endeavor- impulse, inclination, tendency- undertaking- striving) is a term used in early philosophies of psychology and metaphysics to refer to an innate inclination of a thing to continue to exist and enhance itself.

This thing may be mind, matter or a combination of both. Over the millennia, many different definitions and treatments have been formulated by philosophers. Seventeenth-century philosophers Ren Descartes, Baruch Spinoza, and Gottfried Leibniz, and their Empiricist contemporary Thomas Hobbes made important contributions. The conatus may refer to the instinctive will to live of living organisms or to various metaphysical theories of motion and inertia. Often the concept is associated with Gods will in a pantheist view of Nature.

The concept may be broken up into separate definitions for the mind and body and split when discussing centrifugal force and inertia.
